Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, has asked the Federal Government to go after bandits and terrorists in the country.
The group said this while reacting to the re-arrest and re-arraignment of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
This was issued in a statement signed by the National Coordinator of HURIWA, Emmanuel Onwubiko, and the group’s Media Affairs Director, Zainab Yusuf, entitled, ‘If You Can Successfully Arrest Nnamdi Kanu, Then Arrest The Terrorists Killing Nigerians In North East And North West – HURIWA’.

HURIWA said, “If the Nigerian government under Muhammadu Buhari can go as far as arresting the fugitive head of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra whose group has consistently denied embracing armed struggle to achieve self-determination, it is expected that President Muhammadu Buhari should focus also on arresting the real terrorists of ISWAP/Boko Haram terrorists responsible for over 32,000 deaths of innocent citizens and the destruction of North-East of Nigeria.
“The Federal Government should stop pampering armed Fulani terrorists and kidnappers who are waging war against innocent school children of Northern Nigeria.”
